Students Receive Media Award from MSG Varsity Network


Deer Park Business Education students have fostered a partnership with MSG Varsity, the first television, online and interactive network devoted to local high school sports and activities. Students enrolled in the high school’s Multimedia Business Applications course submitted segments to the network throughout the year, and in recognition of the exceptional content they provided, Deer Park High School was named "MSG Varsity's Outreach Partner of the Week." In addition, 12 business students received $2,000 in scholarship monies for their outstanding audiovisual contributions.

To signify their accomplishments, an MSG Varsity reporter and camera crew visited the high school classes and interviewed students on their experiences working behind the camera with audiovisual and editing computer software, as well as serving as reporters, sharing Deer Park news on a regional platform.
Schools selected as Outreach Partners of the Week exhibit the values of community, leadership, friendship, teamwork and camaraderie, while engaging in activities that help to teach kids about the ideals of these principles. Deer Park was selected for the students’ ability to maximize the power of media by bringing stories to life through compelling reporting, creative use of the camera and editing, and overall production value.

Prior to shooting and producing content for the channel, students learned about effective and responsible communication in an increasingly multimedia world. MSG Varsity provided students with the technology necessary to create segments and demonstrated how to properly edit and effectively present events and news.
